It hits all the same notes you would expect out of a feel good sports movie, but the performances and real life story really add a lot to it, as does Rabin’s score.<br>=======================<br><br><br>Well said! <br><br>Agreed.I've demanded for it to be removed a long time ago... Maybe in 10 years, who knows...RIP to a legend....<br><br>Just rewatched Coach Carter a few weeks back. It hits all the same notes you would expect out of a feel good sports movie, but the performances and real life story really add a lot to it, as does Rabin’s score.Listening to Rabin's two powerful "basketball scores" - this one and Glory Road. In memory of the great Kobe! RIP, legend!Honestly man, I never understood this site's ratings either.
For those of you disappointed in this score...remember...This is Bad Boys 3 lol....Have you heard Bad Boys 1+2? Cmon now...relax and take it for what it isI'd be surprised if we don't see some Wallfisch scores this year. He has been so prolific lately, would be weird to suddenly go an entire year without a single assignment.CD coming from LLL!Really liked this score, and the movie wasn't as bad as people claim as well... Benjamin Wallfisch does some very nice stuff, his horror scores are always on point like It 1 & 2, Annabelle: Creation, A Cure for Wellness...<br><br>I know he's gonna deliver it with Mortal Kombat even if the movie isn't that good. But kind of a bummer that his next scheduled project comes out in 2021 LOL'Cause maybe the expected all the cues from the sessions
I like this music!The #balfeness !!!! Has outdone himself on Bad Boys for Life.<br>A nod to the last but brought it up to date.<br>This and 6 Underground has blown me away with Balfe’s musici can't understand, when someone is saying "it REMINDS of mw2" when those mentioned cues are completely re-used 1:1. it's identical, sometimes layered with mancinas themes. it doesn't just remind you of mw2 when lorne seriously uses the identical tracks or parts from mw2 -_-<br><br>@bayhem: then listen to it. i'm not a fan of lorne, but his work there is real fun and some real good action cues. with the themes of Zimmer, it's crazy that it's just a game. one of or maybe THE best work of lorne!Colleague of mine (a film score fan too) asked me which new Balfe score is better in my opinion - Bad Boys for Life or 6 Underground?<br><br>Honestly - and as much as I praised BB3 - I couldn't decide......<br><br><br>Both movies have a lot of songs, which is something I don't like. Look at Transformers. There are songs too but they don't overshadow the score. The score is still the star and that's why people flood Steve's Twitter with praise. Day after day. <br><br>But sadly for Lorne, his recent work in film WAS indeed overshadowed by the random songs. If they didn't rely on songs so much, I'm sure that 6 Underground would've been the crown jewel for Lorne. It's a big, big movie that begs for equally big and memorable score (though we can't really expect Transformners-syze score). <br><br>At the end of the day, Lorne did good on 6 Underground but it was just a small sign of what COULD have been.....Some of the action bits, yeah......
This right here is my single biggest issue with Balfe as a composer. And with the recording sessions clips he posts it is truly a mystery. Tinfoil hat on I'd say he skimps on the budget and hires those musicians just for a couple hours to shoot those clips for PR and the actual score is all synth but that's a baseless claim of course lol...<br>....................<br><br><br>It's bigger than that.....<br><br>After all, this is a Bruckheimer production. His movies established Hans and the entire MV/RC sound. His movies are known for their awesome scores. Scores that are populrar with the ordinary viewers as well.  But 2008 onward, things changed.....Back in the 90's and early 2000's every single Bruckheimer film had a spectacular score. Powerful, melodic themes, cues that stayed with you, scores that attracted the attention of the average Joe. <br><br>Nowadays tho, we don't have that. Hell, when was the last time a (newer) action score from MV/RC-related composer was praised the way 'The Rock' was praised?<br><br>Lorne's Mission Impossible? No. Not even close. <br><br><br>Personally, I like what Lorne did with BB3, especially with the emotional cues. But put it next to Mancina's work. I mean it's not even a contest. The Mancina score is one memorable, melodic track after another. There's not a single boring track. Every track is a banger. <br><br>But the newer scores? They have two or three tracks that are  good and everything else is.......utterly forgettable.<br><br>I blame it on the lack of themes. Orchestra or not, more scores need to have actual themes.Some cues sound like Speed 2Guess I'm the only person around here who hasn't listened to the Modern Warfare 2 score. So I can't really have an opinion on this matter..... lolThis right here is my single biggest issue with Balfe as a composer. And with the recording sessions clips he posts it is truly a mystery. Tinfoil hat on I'd say he skimps on the budget and hires those musicians just for a couple hours to shoot those clips for PR and the actual score is all synth but that's a baseless claim of course lol...Everyone keep mentionning mw2 but those drums reminded me of...skylanders giants lol! Just listen to the track « Arena battle » and let me know

Lol, the times when Hans needed less than 10 people to do a score. :D This one's a very fine soundtrack, though.


Hybrid Soldier2014-07-10 22:38:41
Why is that an issue ?

Back in the days you might have had one guy (in most cases, Nick) but he was doing the same amount ALL the additionals nowadays combined do, so where's the difference ? :)


Zimson2014-07-10 22:53:39
My comment was actually not meant to be judgemental. It's of course not an issure. I just find it interesting how things evolved over the years and I'm glad they have. ;)


Hybrid Soldier2014-07-10 22:56:04
And I was no replying with any animosity... lol


Zimson2014-07-10 23:22:57
I didn't get it that way but it seems we got us both a little wrong, lol. :D It wasn't a critique on the amount of people working nowadays on his scores. I just wanted to point out how the team grew bigger along with the movies. ;)

This has probably been asked hundreds of times but is there anywhere where Hans himself talks about, in detail, the additional music process (not the PR crappy interviews he gives to sycophantic magazines and sites), or could you explain it Hybrid. I think the casting of it as "he writes a theme and then says 'okay guys write my score'" is a lazy analysis. I don't care who did exactly what note, I'm just interested in the process, and how involved Hans is at each step.


Zimson2014-07-11 14:52:08
As far as I know for scores like Dead Man's Chest the process is something like this: Hans writes suites inspired by the film. This often starts before the movie is even shot and he also likes to hear the story from the director rather than reading the script. This can take a few months or so. Hans worked a month on the Jack Sparrow theme for example.
After that, when film material is available Hans and his additional composers work together and score the scenes. They often sit down and discuss, sometimes also including the director and other crew members. So, basically Hans is always involved in the process and thus it's absolutely justified that he gets top credits at the end. He's like the director of the score (and also the screenwriter in some way), someone who looks at the big picture rather than the details.
On other scores like Sherlock Holmes or Inception Hans and Lorne worked more separately, as far as I know. Lorne stated in an interview that he sees in which direction Hans is going and then tries to mimic the style or capture the vibe.
Of course I can give no guarantee that this is correct, but it's how I understood it.


Lambegue2014-07-11 17:50:48
I'd be more curious to know how Zimmer gives his directions for the movies he doesn't even see completly (as it is the case with all the Michael Bay movies he worked on). Not a critic at all, I'm just curious.

About "The House of the Spirits", I agree, it's a very fine score. I especially love the two last minutes or so of "Clara"

You are the best composer ever; I just love your music. I purchased several of your soundtracks and stored them on my iPod. Unfortunately, the soundtrack from “The house of the spirits” was not available. If I don’t ask too much, please advise where from can I purchase the soundtracks that iTunes are missing.
Keep up the fantastic good work. Your music is balsam to the soul.
